We’re pleased to endorse our partner Ocean Alliance’s recently launched KickStarter Campaign – Snotbot: Pushing the Frontiers of Whale Research With Drones. This campaign will employ custom-built drones to gather biologic material (i.e., whale spray or snot) from whales in 3 major locations around the world. The entire process is non-invasive, enabling researchers to determine the health of individual whales and pods, familial relationships, and more generally, the state of the ocean habitats in which the whales reside. They may also discover biological materials and data of benefit to us – mankind. For more details and to potentially contribute, take a look at http://tinyurl.com/snotbot.
